"I hope this win will boost Pakistan cricket and all the (major) playing nations will come to Pakistan", said Sarfraz.

"I was telling somebody the other day that I've had five semi-finals with South Africa and never got to a final".

Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur has described the "surreal" feeling of watching his side bounce back from a drubbing by India in its tournament opener, reported the ICC.

Out for 3 in the fourth over of the Champions Trophy final, he walked away from the celebrating Indians then stopped to watch the replay on the video screen at The Oval.

He was finally out in the 34th over, scoring 114 off 106 balls, including 12 boundaries and three sixes.

Kohli had no clue of what the question meant so the journalist asked him again, further confusing the Indian captain.

India, losing finalists of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, have three players in the eleven picked by a jury which included three former national skippers, Sourav Ganguly, England's Mike Atherton and Rameez Raja of Pakistan.

"If there's been a more improbable Pakistan triumph than this, it's yet to be written", said Osman Samiuddin, author of a definitive book on Pakistan cricket, The Unquiet Ones. Nasirul Islam said: "Disheartened by the match result, Bidyut committed suicide by jumping in front of a running train Sunday night".

"So we just had to keep believing and keep them trusting the techniques and keep them trusting their game plan and keep them trusting their roles, and that's why I'm incredibly proud of that dressing room because they did that".

Imran, who is now a seasoned politician, felt that the captain and the management should now build on the Champions Trophy win and start preparing for the 2019 World Cup.

"After the India match I said to my boys, the tournament is not finished yet". We knew we were better than that.

Pakistan enhanced their long-held reputation as one of the most unpredictable teams in world sport with an extraordinary and overwhelming victory over bitter local rivals India in the Champions Trophy final on Sunday.

"With the ball, we could have had more wicket-taking opportunities".

Hardik Pandya hit a go-for-broke 76 off 43 balls, including six sixes, but his career-best slog was stopped when he was run out by teammate Ravindra Jadeja.

Chasing 339, India's top-order were undone by some brilliant bowling from Mohammad Amir who dismissed the in-form trio of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Shikhar Dhawan.
